9780415772990: International Migration and Citizenship Today

International migration has emerged in the last decade as one of the world’s most controversial and pressing issues. This thought-provoking textbook offers the reader a more nuanced and knowledgeable understanding of the complex economic, political, cultural, and moral concerns that arise when people move across borders seeking admission into other countries.

Splitting the text into five broad sections, Steiner facilitates easy navigation of the complex discussions that surround the issue of migration:

* Section One – Introduction: examines how the central questions that frame the book will be addressed, including: what criteria should be used to admit migrants? and How should a country grant citizenship?

* Section Two – Immigrants: discusses the criteria for accepting immigrants, dealing with the unwanted, and assessing the economic, cultural and political impacts.

* Section Three – Refugees: evaluates the methods used to protect refugees, the controversies surrounding asylum and the shortcomings of current refugee definitions.

* Section Four – Citizenship: charts the rise of nationalism, presents modern issues of minority rights and diversity, and examines processes of naturalization across the globe.

* Section Five – Conclusion: considers more unconventional approaches to migration and citizenship, and suggests moving towards a more holistic approach.

Carefully constructed to spark discussion and student reflection and featuring suggested resources at the end of each section, this book offers dozens of contemporary examples and case studies from across the globe. International Migration and Citizenship Today is essential reading for not only students of migration and citizenship, but also globalization, international relations, and democracies.

About the Author:

Niklaus Steiner is director of the Center for Global Initiatives and Adjunct Professor of Political Science and International Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. His research and teaching interests are immigration, refugees, nationalism, and citizenship and his publications include The Problems of Protection: UNHCR, Refugees, and Human Rights ed. Niklaus Steiner, Mark Gibney and Gil Loescher (Routledge, 2003).

Review:

An excellent and accessible introduction to the complex issue of migration and citizenship. Its substance and style encourages discussion of topics that are too often dealt with in simplistic ways. Steiner effectively challenges our outdated concepts and thinking on migration and citizenship and challenges us to reimagine and remodel our analytical framework to meet the demographic, economic, and political challenges of the 21st century.

--Demetrios Papademetriou, President, Migration Policy Institute

Niklaus Steiner’s book on migration should be required reading for all citizens of every country, including students and policy makers. The reason is that migration is a key issue in a global world that entails both frequent movement of people and maintaining boundaries of nations. He offers an analysis that is at once clear and accessible as well as humane, informed by both legal and cultural understanding. This is an important text for courses ranging from social sciences to law and administration.

--James L. Peacock, former President, American Anthropological Association

Every college student should read this book. Niklaus Steiner guides the reader through the complexities of immigration, including research on global migration, naturalization, citizenship, border protection, and much more. The purpose of the book is to inform the current debate on immigration by providing information and perspective on how to create better policies for one of the most salient issues of our time.

--Regina Cortina Teachers College, Columbia University

This brief yet substantive book is an unconventional and conceptually rich overview of the complexities and debates within global migration. The critical questions on immigration, refugees, integration, and citizenship are debated in a very engaging and accessible way that will be of great interest and value to teachers, students, policymakers, and the wider public. Having examined many books on migration, I will be using this contemporary study as the core text in my upcoming courses in Global Migration and Global Studies.

--Safia Swimelar, Elon University

This book [title] does a wonderful job of bringing together elements of political science, law, demography, history, economics, and ethical considerations that help to broaden our understanding -- and our overall approach -- to issues relating to human migration. This is highly readable and thought-provoking at the same time.
